On Saturday 25 June 2016, the Claremont Main Road Masjid (CMRM) in conjunction with the Institute for the Healing of Memories (IHOM) convened a leadership empowerment workshop at the Muhammadi Masjid in Dunoon.
Attended by fifteen participants, the three-hour workshop explored the relationship between leadership and healing. Participants were led through discussions to better understand the issues of trauma and hurt and the process of healing that needs to follow that. The participants were all chairpersons of the Dunoon area committees.
This is the second year in succession that CMRM’s annual `Id al-Fitr food hamper distribution has been accompanied by an educational workshop. At the end of the workshop the chairpersons were each given 20 food and blanket coupons for distribution to 20 of the most needy families in their areas.
The distribution of the food hampers and blankets will take place on Saturday 2 July at 11am. All CMRM members and friends are invited to join us. CMRM has sponsored the daily Ramadan iftar meals at the Dunoon masjid since the inception of the masjid in July 2012
